Would like a "Twin"
By Rozman on 01/21/05 17:47 PM (PST)

2002 Acura TL 3.2 Type-S 3.2 Type-S 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Bought the car after being turned away by a snooty Mercedes Dealer. No transmission problems yet, did the recall on it. The tires are expensive, and can only get them at the dealer.Bose system is excellent added the X-M Radio to it. Get 30 mpg in normal driving. Love it....

Great car but where is the Honda reliability

Review

This is a great car with some quality control issues. Transmission is not the greatist thing, mine is starting to slip and car only has 22k on it. Other problems is it took the dealer four tries to figure out why my sunroof was rattling, finally they replaced the entire thing, no problems since. Engine is excellent. Comfort is great. Gas mileage could be better. I get around 19 in the city. I wish the car was rear wheel drive because there is occasionally too much torque steer. Otherwise great car.

Don't buy a '02...buy an '03

Review

The Acura TL Type-S is a great sport sedan. Acura has had a hard time with the '02 transmissions. Its a specific range of VIN numbers and if your car falls with in...there is an expected chance of problems with your vehicle. Mine is one of them. Not only do I have one of these cars but 2 and they both exhibit the same qualities. To make the story short, I'm on my 4th trasmission and its due for the next. You come to recognize the signs! The talk I have heard from my countless visits to my dealer is the '03 have had no problems. I will say the car has never left me stranded, but I have had to push it out of parking spots because of no "Reverse."

Overall performance and build quality is great. Had to replace tranny @52K. Acura service was great, and replaced the tranny under warranty.

Fun Sedan

Review

I love the TL-S. Quality is bulletproof, and the car is quite fun to drive: it handles very well, accelerates smartly, and is very comfortable on my commute. There is plenty of space in the back for two child safety seats, and the front seats are comfortable and well- bolstered.

Keep On Runnin

Review

Have had vehicle for under two years with 18k mi. I've read reviews about transmission issues, cheap interior, tires, as well as those who love to drive. Traded in a 93 Taurus SHO with a 24 valve Yamaha engine - Type S can't produce that power. The low center of gravity makes it handle exceptionally well on hard curves and turns (much better than the bloaty feeling in a Taurus). Once moving on water-slickened roads here in the NW, I haven't had ANY problems. Interior issues for some don't bother me - it's cleanly designed. Agree that transmission isn't perfect when running in auto mode v. tiptronic on the fly; sliding cover under sun roof rattles.

Great performing vehichle. Quick, handles beautifully. Only bad point was replacing the transmission at 25k. Flaw in the design of tranny, fortunately under warranty.
